“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin or his background or his religion … People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love … For love comes more naturally to the human heart than its opposite,” Obama said, quoting former South African president Nelson Mandela in tweets.
Obama tweeted a photo smiling at four children, has been retweeted more than 1.1 million times and liked 2.723 million times as of Tuesday evening.
